Here is the raw response and just a little EQ to the unity speaker. If I just threw the unity in my room and played them, which I did, the subjective comments would be they are a tad bright, bass...

I guess you guys are not getting it. All of the speakers I owned sound great without EQ in room too except the DR's. They all had different responses too. Tomorrow I will post the response the...

When you hear two speakers not EQ'd and one sounds better than the other it does not mean it would with EQ as well. Big mistake.

All I know is that when I had the SEOS pure 10 in my room it measure from 80-20khz +/- 6.5 dBs without EQ and the sound was nice. Many people listen to speakers like this and judge the sound which...

Yes you remember, you don't want me bringing that up again. My SEOS 10's were great and I brought them to a GTG, remember? My SEOS were designed to be flat as well, no?

When I got my first pair of DR-200's built for me they sounded the same! I returned them quickly. I then came across a used pair for less than half the price and figured let's see what happens and I...

Yeah, when I blind tested them against the U215's, in stereo mode, I was playing music at 110 dBs. My room alone won't be that much of a factor. I wonder if the woofers were broken in at all and...

Discounting the effects of EQ is a huge mistake. I have done countless blind tests and without EQ the results vary greatly. Without EQ the Unity U215 had more mid bass than any other speaker I have...

When Pulse first came out many people were bottoming out their SVS PB13 ultras so I would be careful. Once they put it in 15hz mode I think they were OK, the 20hz mode was bottoming.

Archaea,
I thought I did answer. I said earlier that I thought bass at 100 dBs or lower was not noteworthy at any frequency. My opinion of how loud I like my bass won't...

To me MV at -15 dBs no matter what system you have is just slightly better than watching TV. Cinema has always been about real impact for me. Having said that a ported sub tuned to 15hz will not...

I don't disagree with most you say and the type of floor you have makes a difference as well. I also think using BHD is too short. The amount of ULF that we can isolate is minimal but I am one you...
